Must an employee's ex-employer inform his or her new employer of any ordinary parental leave taken?

Employers are not obliged to maintain records of the amount of ordinary parental leave employees have taken. Similarly, they are not duty bound to inform an ex-employee's new employer of the amount of ordinary parental leave taken, although in practice many employers would be willing to do this if asked. A new employer may, however, have to rely on the statement of the new employee.
